Home Depot Craft

I know I have mentioned this on my family blog, but there are some of you that do not have access to that so I will mention it again here.

The first Saturday of every month, The Home Depot has a craft for kids. You take your kids and get a free craft apron and craft.

You can do the craft right there with a bunch of other kids, or take it home and do it later. (I like to take it home so I can do it for a break in our school day)

My kids LOVE these crafts and it keeps them busy for a long time.
First I help them put the craft together

Then for something extra to keep them busy, I always let them paint the craft when it is all built.

It is such a great way for your kids to learn how to use a hammer and create something fun.

This is a nationwide thing and they usually do it from 8-11.
So put the 1st Saturday in September on your calendar and head to the Home Depot to get your free craft.

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is this that they made?

It is a little soccer game. They had a lot of fun playing with it after the paint dried.
They have also made a money bank, flower pot holder, tool kit holder.......lots of fun stuff.
